Replacement Pre-Filters

Replacement Pre-Filters


The replaceable pre-filter is a medical grade synthetic material that extends your filter life and keeps your flow rate fast by catching the larger particles before they reach your filter.

Forget the coffee filters, bandanas, and extra gear for pre-filtering. The Neptune Series™ filter has a pre-filter built into the housing! Keep these replacement packs handy so you can swap the pre-filter easily and quickly in the field. 


  • Blocks all large particles from getting inside your water filter - keeps your flow rate fast, extends filter life, and reduces the need for back flushing. 

  • Easily replace your pre-filter by removing "dirty" end of filter and swapping old pre-filter with a new one.

  • Your Neptune Series™ filter does not need the pre-filter to still filter water, so if you run out in the field, you're still covered.

  • Made from safe materials - 100% BPA and PVC free


  • Medical Grade Synthetic Fibers

  • Small & Lightweight

  • Easy to Replace In The Field

  • Reusable & Washable

Whats Included:
• 5 Pre-filter Replacements

Great Backpacking, Hikers Water Filtering System. Very light weight, less than 2 oz carry solution.

So far I'm very impressed with this setup. Bought the Salado Neptune Series kit on Amazon recently and tested it with our nasty lake water we have here at Indian Lake Ohio. Water filters through this filter system at about 1 liter per minute which is nice and comes crystal clear. Taste clean and refreshing, no remnants of nasty lake algae biomass smells. Love the pre-filter inserts which help reduce required back flushing large particles and helps keeping the filter overall clean. The 1 liter Tellus water bladder fold up bottles are great!

Fast shipping, A+ seller!

I ordered a filter through facebook and it arrived within 2 days via the free shipping option. It was packaged well and includes a manual plus extra round filters that fit into the main filter. Fast shipping, the filter seems like good quality product, I will have to wait to use it but it seems good for now.

Best backpacking water filter PERIOD! And I have tried them all

As an older avid backpacker, I am always looking for a lighter, simpler, more efficient way to enjoy the back-country. For years I have used all the multitude of Sawyer water filters and recent Hydro-Blu filter and they all work well.
The problem with the Sawyer filters is clogging and diminished water flow and the need for couplers to connect to my water bottles. Back-flushing can be a pain requiring a separate Monojet syringe or an inefficient Smartwater bottle tip.
Salado has done an very clever thing in designing a disposable pre-filter to slow down the clogging, and with a removable end-cap back-flushing in rarely needed and has both threads and tubing tip for multiple connection choices.
The Salado "Neptune Series" water filter is now my go-to choice for all my backpacking trips from weekenders to weekly trips in the Sierras. IMO the best 20 bucks spent!


I received then but I haven't used them yet. I thank you for sending them in a timely manner.

Excellent Filter

Bought this filter for a short camping trip so me and my wife could have a portable water system during a longer hike that was next to a stream. Worked perfectly and had zero issues. We were able to save a good amount of weight in our day packs not having to carry around bottled water.
